She was involved in her children’s school activities serving on the PTA board and Girl Scouts Club of America, and volunteering in FFA, FHA, and the 4-H Club. Her least favorite mom duty was the cotton candy machine at football games. Lequeta enjoyed many deep sea fishing trips with her husband. She was an avid deer hunter and spent many opening days of the season with her beloved son Billy Wayne. Lequeta enjoyed the arts and participated in events at the San Antonio Petroleum Club, San Antonio Art League, San Antonio Women’s Auxiliary, and the Hollywood Park Women’s Club, etc. Lequeta was an artist herself and often gave her paintings to family and friends.

Lequeta is preceded in death by her husband, George Vernon Leslie; brother, Billy Ray Martin; and son, Billy Wayne Leslie at the young age of 16.

She is survived by her daughter Linda and Mark Ainsworth of Gonzales, Debbie and Peter Keating of College Station, six grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

Heartfelt thanks to Layne & Jeanne B., Janice A., Dwight and Aimee A., Steve and Kay P., Rick, Ladonna, Travis & Taylor, the entire Bagnall family, Tommy and friends from her bible study group in San Antonio, Bonnie G., her dear bible study friends from Westminster Presbyterian Church who gave her a tea party complete with lace, china and her favorite homemade pie, and countless others too numerous to mention.

It saddens me to learn of LaQuita's passing. She was such a precious lady. I so looked forward to seeing her every year at our reunions, and speaking with her, periodically, by phone. She called when she was moving to Bryan; she was happy to be going to be close to her children.
I had no idea she had been so ill; I should have been more diligent keeping in touch.

I will miss knowing she is there, but happy knowing she is with our Lord, and is no longer in pain.

Much love to her family,

Sharon Kirk Wilson
